So far, we’ve seen how to select and animate a sigle item. In this episode, we would learn how to create a multi selection animation. This is a common feature in many apps and we would cover both the setup and the animation.

class ExtraItem extends StatefulWidget {
  final Extra extra;
  final ValueChanged<bool> onSelected;

  const ExtraItem({Key? key, required this.extra, required this.onSelected}) : super(key: key);

class _ExtraItemState extends State<ExtraItem> {
    bool _isSelected = false;
    Widget build(BuildContext context) {
        return InkWell(
            onTap: () {
                setState(() {
                    _isSelected = !_isSelected;
            child: Container(

        } else {
        setState(() {});
child: Column(

                    ? Border.all(
                        color: colorScheme.secondary,
                        width: 2,
                    : null,
            child: Image.asset(
            duration: const Duration(milliseconds: 500),
            style: TextStyle(
